BSc in Geography (Hons)
BSc Geography degree students study the natural world and learn about the impacts humans have on the environment. The range of skills geography graduates acquire makes them attractive to a wide range of employers. In the first year, students follow courses that explore geographic issues from the perspectives of natural, physical and social science. In Years 2 and 3 they specialize in physical geography courses. The dissertation provides a unique opportunity to study a topic of particular interest in considerable depth. Fieldwork is an essential part of the programme with trips funded by the School. Trips have included visits to the New Forest, Lake District, and Spain. Successful completion of at least 36 weeks of the optional work placement will result in the award of a Diploma of Industrial Study. We also have collaborative arrangements with universities in the Netherlands, Italy, and France, permitting students to study abroad for a period of time under the Erasmus European Exchange scheme.
The aims of the programme are:
- To provide an understanding of the natural and physical environment including the earth's landforms, rivers, oceans, atmosphere, flora, and fauna
- To provide an understanding of sustainability and the impacts of human activity on the natural environment
- To train you in the principal techniques of investigation and data analysis employed in Physical Geography.
